I have been thinking a lot recently about going back to school. I think the ONLY thing stopping me at this point is not wanting to spend the money. I wish one of my rich relatives who has a lot of money would say, "Laura, you are so smart...let me help you out." It's nothing to them. Like my father, if he could just give me a loaner from the trust fund I'm maybe going to receive when I'm 77 because he lives to be 109. But I doubt I'll get that trust fund anymore because I've been such a "bad daughter" by making fun of his diseases and I'm pretty sure all my money is going towards his "just-in-case" radiation treatment or my stepmother's bipolar light mood stabilizer.
But I digress. I just don't know. I sit all day. Every day. At work. Bored. Bored. Bored. And now I am 34 and I don't know how long I can keep doing this same thing over and over and over. So, school. That would keep me busy. The problem is yesterday, I went from looking into getting my MBA, to being a pastry chef to being a laser technician to being a teacher. So, my focus is a little off. But, school would keep me interested right now. A hell of a lot more interested than the daily drudgery of coming into a boring job everyday and getting excited when it's time to go to Shaws to make my salad and decide which flavor Kettle potato chips I wanted to eat that day.
So, I decided to study for my GMAT. I figured that would give me a focus at least and somthing to try for. I am so bad at taking tests like that and my scores are always so low but I figure I could at least try. But the problem is the test itself is $250. So, I am going to start by getting a couple of books and seeing if I can focus on practicing for the test.
I'm sure I could always ask my father for math advice while he lays in his hospital bed too.
